KISS: 'Kissology – Vol. 3' DVD Box Set Is A Canadian Hit

According to a posting on KISS' official web site, KISS' brand new DVD box set, "Kissology - Vol. 3 1992-2000", sold 7,656 units in Canada in its first week of release — the highest first-week sales total of all three volumes so far.

VH1 Classic Records released "Kissology - Vol. 3 1992-2000" on December 18. The set contains nearly 10 hours of KISS live on stage, including songs that didn't make it into the broadcast or CD version of the MTV "Unplugged" performance; and the much-heralded Queens, NY Coventry Show from December 1973 — the band's first-ever concert filmed in makeup in its entirety.

"Kissology - Vol. 3 1992-2000" has been super-expanded to four DVDs, featuring over 100 live performances, commentary from Paul Stanley, Gene Simmons, Bruce Kulick and Tommy Thayer as well as a 20-page full-color booklet.

Five concerts are included:

* Detroit – 1992
* Detroit – 1996
* Los Angeles – 1998
* New Jersey – 2000
* Queens, NY - 1973

One version of the release features a fifth bonus disc of KISS' performance at the KROQ Weenie Roast on June 15, 1996. Tracks include: "Deuce", "Love Gun", "Calling Dr. Love", "Firehouse", "Shock Me", "100,000 Years", "Detroit Rock City", "Black Diamond" and "Rock and Roll All Nite".

According to a posting on KISS' official web site, the band's DVD box set "Kissology: Volume 2 1978-1992" has been certified sextuple platinum, which comes out to around 150,000 copies due to the fact that the set consists of three discs; platinum certification for a single-disc release is 100,000 copies. It was released on August 14, 2007.

"Kissology: Volume 2 1978-1992" includes seven hours of live KISS on three DVDs. A bonus fourth DVD was made available via exclusive distribution outlets.
